Every week on a Monday Room 3 go onto the class blog and write their weekly goal. During our reading programme the kids write ways that will help them reach their goal.  
On Friday we have time for reflection.
 Here are the goals that we want to achieve for next Friday.

Writing from Liliya

In Room 3 we have been writing recounts about a time when we were scared. We had to write it in our books and write what happened when we were scared.

The Time I Thought A Stranger Broke In

One time in the middle of the night I woke up. I heard noises that sounded like footsteps and started to worry. I tried to forget about it by singing songs in my head. I started roaming the hallway to see if anyone else was awake. I looked in my Mum and Dads room, my brothers room, the office, the bathroom and the living room. No one was there so I went back to bed. A few hours later I woke up again. I was shaking and thinking if I should get up and look again or hide under the bed sheets. Instead I would sneak up to my Mum and Dads room and tell them. I tip-toed to my Mum and Dads room. I told my Mum and Dad about the sounds I was hearing and they told me to go back to bed. Then I realised my cats Smokey and Midnight were running around and playing in the hallway. I sighed and went back to bed.

Picture Books

We have been looking at various picture books from our class library and thinking about the storyline, illustration, layout, characters, use of words and ideas. On Thursday we sketched what we thought would be a good illustration that matched the text that was read out to us while we lay on the ground with our eyes shut. This helped us use our imagination and gave us a chance to think really hard about what we wanted to create.

"My picture is about when the girl in the story wakes up in the morning and flew downstairs to have breakfast." - Pyper G 

"This is a picture about the scene with the old lady with the oldest car. But it's not finished just yet." 
- Zach C

"My picture is about when the girl is with her little cat Fluffy in front of the fire" - Greer

Ten minutes to share...

In Room 3 on a Friday one person is able to share something to the class that they want their peers to learn. It is a chance for each member in Room 3 to be a leader and to teach something they think would be interesting for the class. Elisabeth volunteered as lucky number one. She shared her dancing skills and the kids learnt some fab new moves as you can see. Watch this space - as Elsa is up next week.

KVC Sports Day

On Tuesday the Year 6's went to Kaikorai Valley College to participate in a sports day. This was a lot of fun for our Wakari kids as they were able to learn new skills, practise new drills and play in a game situation at each station. The stations included; kiwi tag, athletics, orienteering, softball, lacrosse, petanque, hockey, and futsal. We all had a fantastic day!

Lion Art

We've been busy creating in Room 3. We each had a sheet to colour in, we blended warm and cool colours with pastel. When we put them all together we had created a class lion. It looks amazing! We brainstormed words that describe lions and some of the positive attributes of the children in Room 3. Pop in and check it out.
